Change the 220 response code message for telent port 25

Normally when we telnet to port 25 of SMTP server we used to get 220 header message
saying "220 mail.imc.org SMTP service ready" or "220 smtp01.northamerica.corp.microsoft.com Microsoft ESMTP MAIL Service, Version: 5.0.2172.1 ready at  Tue, 29 Feb 2000 18:55:48 -0600".

What i want is that i need to change the Header message banner ( code ?) to something like "220 XXXX.XXX.XXX XXXX XXXXXXX XXXXX" where as the person who telnet to port 25 won't get any infomation and they should not be using help and few other command like VRFY kind off.

 I am sure it is possible & i have seen this with my last conpany but I am not sure about where to edit the header.And also to disable few commands.

I need this solution for both sendmail and excahnge 2000 as well.

You help is very much appreciated.

Regards
Moorthy

Including:

define(`confPRIVACY_FLAGS', `authwarnings,novrfy,noexpn,restrictqrun')dnl

in your sendmail.mc will disable VRyY, amoung other things, and prevent someone from easily getting user information from a connection to the the SMTP port. The welcome banner that displays the hostname & version info can also be disabled, but I don't remember the mc directive for that and can't look anything up right now. I'll check for it later.

I use
define(`confSMTP_LOGIN_MSG',`$j not-the-mail-server-you-thought-it-was')dnl
in /etc/mail/sendmail.cf to mangle the banner.

That should take care of sendmail. No idea about exchange.
